A question for all of you with more camera experience then me. I am a chef and am thinking of starting an intense food driven website. The plan is to take a lot of close up pictures of plated foods, individual food items, shots of food at organic markets-farms, I think you are getting the idea.
What would the best lense be to partake in something like this. I have a Nikon 40D camera. Moeny is a concern, budget is up to $1000 for lens or len's.
From what I have read it would be something macro, not sure if that is right though. Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated!!
